Some 20 famous DJs unite in the Vaudois Alps for this huge music festival showcasing the best names in electro, house, nu disco, and drum n bass.

The largest event of its kind in the Vaudois Alps, this huge British electronic music festival brings together a host of famous DJs piste-side. It is the winter version of Gilles Peterson’s highly successful Worldwide Festival held each summer in France, and is presented by the British radio star himself. This year’s headliners include Henry Wu, Red Greg, Jameszoo and Lefto. What is otherwise particularly special is that the festival combines skiing and nightlife, with music by the slopes by day, and daily après-ski DJ sets and live music that characterize a decidedly laid-back and friendly atmosphere by night. Lift passes are available at special rates for festival-goers.
